    I got my Commuter for the L920. I expected it to look a bit better than it does... Theres a lot of excess silicone on the edges which makes it looks terrible IMO. For $35 I expected it to look a bit better than that. The case seems to fit pretty well. I can take more photos of the case on the phone when I get home later.

    Here is a link to a few quick photos I took.

    Those cases look ugly. They make the phones look bigger and very ugly no matter what phone you have.

    I contacted Otterbox and they said they will replace it.

    That may be true, but there are times where I need such a case. When I have to go out to my work's jobsites (construction), cycling/mtn biking, hiking, etc.

    Wow.. Not impressed with that at all.. I would contact otterbox about that.. It looks like crap. I'm sure they will get that fixed but doesn't make me feel to good knowing I just ordered one of these...

    Yes it does make the phone bulky but my job also requires a protective case otherwise the phone would be ruined in no time. I have the defender on it now but wanted something a bit better as I don't really like the built in screen protector (with gap cut out at top) it lets in dirt and dust onto the screen surface and I don't like that. I hope my commuter case doesn't look like yours or they'll get a call from me as well..

    ok, heres the deal, I took some real fine sand paper and just used my hands by rubbing and I was able to clean out the areas that weren't molded properly and it looks much better. Still not perfect though. Also, it still works with the wireless charger, coincidentally that came in today too! I took new pics as well.

    I also have this snap on case: Amazon.com: NOKIA LUMIA 920 HYBRID RUBBERISED BACK COVER CASE - SOLID BLACK: Cell Phones & Accessories

    It looks great, its the exact same color as the matte black phone. It has a rubbery feel to it and it fits great, nice and minimal.

    I just got my Otterbox Commuter today mine was in perfect condition the inner rubber was molded perfectly. I am very happy with this case. It adds very little thickness to the phone much unlike the Defender case. If you want a excellent quality well built case the Commuter is great. I also have no problem wirelessly charging my 920 with either case installed it works with both cases installed and that is a HUGE bonus!!

    Mine doesnt, but it looks like it fits to match the otterbox, not the screen so its a little smaller than the size of the front scree panel.

    I applied the otterbox screen protector provided. Its meant to fit just below the AT&T and NOKIA logos on the front screen down to the bottom of the glass. It fits well it is a tad smaller width wise as well but I believe that if they made it any wider the protector would lift on the edges as the screen curves a bit at the edge. The quality of the screen protector is excellent. I absolutely love this case. I had the Defender on it prior and this one is much better IMO. It doesn't add unnecessary bulk to the phone yet protects it very well. So far I'm very pleased!

    I think that one is defective. A few pictures show the correct, perfect molding.
